You are welcomed, and I agree! Sometimes it is hard to see what an
extension really is, and there isn't currently an uninstall.

I agree that we should eventually add that functionality. I'm going to be
using the notebooks to teach writing this Fall. I'll explain that this
current method (no suggestions) fits the philosophy of the system... it
doesn't do everything for you, but tries to help along the way. And, just
perhaps, students might actually learn how to spell :)
But yes, in the long run, it should make suggestions on right-click.
Someone in the issue tracker even suggested that we could hook up
functionality to do tab word completion... that would be even more in the
spirit of the system :) Might as well take advantage of the dictionary, if
you've got it.
